Keeping this in mind, we launched the machan gallery to celebrate the best photographs clicked by our guests at the machan.
We defy impermanence with our films, poems, and photographs. Each photograph has a hidden subtext that says ‘I will not let go!.’ Every month we get to see so many amazing pictures clicked at the machan. And a few of these amazing pictures are truly extraordinary.
“Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.”Jonathan Swift
Hence, we decided to support their creative vision by nominating them for an award. We believe even a small event like this could lead to greater things for our talented guests.
We have managed to conduct two contests so far, and the response has been beyond our wildest imaginations. We are glad that a small tree house resort in Lonavala can inspire people to be creative, and they help us see the world through their colorful lens, changing the way we perceive things. The winners of the contest receive vouchers and goodies for their next machan visit.
Let us hear what a few of our winners have to say about their victory.
Thank you so much for nominating me. This made my day.’ –Priyanka Deshmukh

‘Thank you so much for the appreciation, when I was clicking this picture, I didn’t realize it will reward me back in such a pleasurable manner. As they say, you do good and good things comes back to you. My stay at machan was one hell of a great experience and now this is like a cherry on top.’Mukul Vaswani
A creative moment occurs when something bigger than ourselves finds its way through us. Creativity is the interconnection between disparate concepts or ideas to reveal something new.
We hope that the machan continues to inspire people to be more creative, which will further spread our message of conservation, preservation and community.
Don’t wait for the perfect moment, take a moment and make it perfect. Check out the other nominees in the gallery below.
